No. Anyone attending weekend events must register (except for children 2 and under). We have planned activities and events to be for your entire family, and this is a great time for you all to connect with your Kent State student. We encourage you to ask your student(s) about any conflicting exams, papers or other events that may conflict before making travel plans.
Families are encouraged to arrive on Thursday or Friday so they can enjoy the many campus events planned for Friday. Events are scheduled for Friday and Saturday so plan to stay for the entire weekend if you can!
